Rooms are basic, but clean and functional. The food at the restaurant on site is very good, though service is very slow... This was a good base for activities in the nearby nature reserve and close to the local town.

Only the outer ambience is good. Rooms are bad and shabby. Furnitures are very very old and not maintained. Do not have TV in the room. No rooms service is available except tea or coffee. Restaurant is worst and it gives undue preference to the foreigners. Overall very bad.
